Save checked-out files to a local folder

This policy setting allows users to save files checked out from SharePoint, or other document management server products, to a local folder when editing the files.

By default, checked-out files are stored in the Office Document Cache. The Office Document Cache allows the same offline editing capabilities as a local folder, but automatically syncs the files when there is Internet connectivity.

Note: It's not recommended to enable this policy setting unless needed to support existing document management processes.

If you enable this policy setting, users can specify a local folder to save checked-out files to by going to File > Options > Save > Offline editing options.

If you disable or don't configure this policy setting, checked-out files are stored in the Office Document Cache.

Supported on: At least Windows 7
